Smooth jazz is in the air around here at Indie Music Plus and our next artist to review is Stefano Pesapane. Stefano is a well-trained drummer and musician from Italy who has recently released his single “Urban Flow”. If you’re trying to calm the rage make sure you check this one out. Here are my thoughts.
This single is a perfect representation of what smooth jazz music is today. It has a steady head bouncing groove underneath some sort of soloist. Some of the instruments are real, some aren’t, but the vibes are always good. Like I said earlier… dealing with road rage? This is your new jam.
One of my few critiques about the track is one of my usuals. Sonically it’s pretty thin and the overall sound of the track is VERY electronic. I prefer more of an organic sound. On the other side, the musicality of the song is spectacular. There are tons of musical hook flips and flops which keep the ear interested.
Going back to the electronic sound. One of the things that stick out most to me is the solo instrument. I guess it sounds like a sax or a clarinet? But again, very electronic. Also, the rhythms played on this instrument seem like they’re hard sequenced which really takes away the human feel.
I’m not well versed in the career of Stefano Pesapane but it sounds like he’s got something with “Urban Flow”. I love hearing new indie musicians of all genres and Stefano is no exception! Are there any smooth jazz fans here? Speak up and let Stefano know what you think!
